Question by : I can’t bury my mobile home water pipes! How should I insulate them so they don’t freeze?
I’ve been living in this mobile home for 3 years and the pipes have always been exposed above ground running from the well/water pump to the trailer. This is because the ground below the water pipes is solid rock. I was wondering what would be the best way to insulate these pipes to keep them from freezing every winter. We just built a new pump house around the well/pump also and this hasn’t been insulated either. Any suggestions on the best way to insulate that and keep it nice and warm during the winter? Thanks so much!!
